Volcano (1997)

419589024_orig

A volcano erupts in downtown L.A., threatening to destroy the city. (IMDb)

There’s some moderately engaging disaster-action here (the volcano in the city premise is certainly unique) with decent visuals for its time, but little else: Jones, Cheadle, and Lynch are decent but most of the minor characters are poorly acted and the attempts at humour, sentimentality, character development, and related side plots are embarrassingly weak. With virtually no supporting script for its only mediocre main disaster storyline, Volcano is ultimately a very forgettable flick.

5.6/10
